Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Infant mortality is usually defined (correct me if I'm wrong) as the fraction of children born alive who die in their first year of life. Obviously low birth weight is a factor, but post-natal care would seem to be very important as well.

So maybe there are two factors that conspire to increase the infant mortality rate among low-income Americans: higher prevalence of LWB and inadequate access to post-natal health care. Either one of the two factors by itself might not cause a substantial increase in infant mortality.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
